EP 101: Screw Expectations with Dr. Agnes Wainman
About the Show:
Today I speak with Dr. Agnes Wainman, a clinical psychologist that helps overwhelmed and worried women overcome unrealistic expectations that are making them sick and miserable. She coined a term called Expectation Discrepancy Syndrome.
We talk about:
- what causes unrealistic expectations
- why they are making you miserable and
- how to overcome them.
About Dr. Agnes Wainman:
I understand what it's like to feel overwhelmed, to face unexpected life stressors and to struggle with finding balance between self-care and the care of everyone else. I know what it's like to feel like you're doing everything that you "should" do, yet it still never feels like it's enough. It is exhausting, both physically and emotionally. I want to help you silence that nagging voice in your head that says that you're not good enough or that you're not doing enough. I want you to be able to enjoy your life without having to imagine all the possible worst case scenarios and feeling like you need a contingency plan for all of them. My passion is to help you put you back on your own priority list, without guilty or worry.
I decided to pursue my PhD in clinical psychology because I have always been intrigued by people, their stories, their relationships, their responses to stressful situations and their resilience. During my studies at Western University in London, Ontario, I was incredibly lucky to have trained in a number of different settings including working with university students at the Student Development Centre, patients with spinal cord injuries at Parkwood Hospital, patients living with chronic pain and other medical conditions at London Health Sciences Centre. I received training in a number of different theoretical orientations including cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy and mindfulness meditation training. During my residency at the London Clinical Psychology Residency Consortium, I continued my training within programs such as the Fertility Clinic and received specialized training in the relationship between physical health and emotional well-being. Following the completion of my Doctoral Degree, I began working in private practice and then founded London Psychological Services. I am so privileged to be invited into your life.
